Sports Show Host Thinks NFL Should Delay Bills Game Until Mahomes is Ready To Play
All eyes will be on Arrowhead Stadium this Sunday at 6:40 p.m. when the Bills play the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. The winner moves on to Super Bowl LV.
The biggest storyline right now is the status of Chiefs' star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who left the Divisional round game against the Cleveland Browns with an injury and later placed in the NFL's concussion protocol.
Because of the five-phase process, the concussion protocol takes, there's still worry Mahomes will not be ready to play on Sunday, which means backup Chad Henne would be under center for Kansas City. The Chiefs are still optimistic Mahomes will be cleared in time for the AFC title game.
Colin Cowherd host a nationally syndicated radio and TV show on FS1 called The Herd with Colin Cowherd, and he had a controversial take on the Mahomes injury.
Cowherd says the NFL should delay the Bills-Chiefs game until Mahomes is cleared to play. No, really...
I get the mindset for wanting to wait since most neutral fans would want to see Allen vs. Mahomes on Sunday, but unfortunately, this is the NFL (it's sports in general). Injuries are a part of the game and if this precedent was set then we would have to delay more games in the future so the best players could be cleared in time.
